Asus VG278QR

Post by eX7 » 22 Oct 2019, 09:58

Hello,

Guys I am going crazy :)

Just bought this monitor Asus VG278QR (165hz) and with ULMB - ON and Tracefree 40 I just can not get rid of ghosting.
If I go higher with trace free I get overshoot and corona.

This Issues were not so noticeable on my old monitor (AGON AG251FZ (240hz)) which I wanted to replace for bigger one.

Are there some tricks to improve my experience?

Is there even point to try to get it warrantied or should I just return it and get eventually different model?

Thanks for any tips.

What gpu do you own?
Do you have G-Sync compatibility enabled?

This model has higher input lag than the 25 size.
If you really want 27 size, you should pick a different monitor.
You can see the reviews for both on prad.de.

Try these settings:

Hi, thanks for reply.

I have following hardware:
8700k @ 4,7ghz
1080 Ti
16gb ram
nvme drive

When it comes to gaming I only play CS:GO and I am getting ussually avr. 350fps @ 1080p with max details.

G sync is at this point uselless to me, I either use Fast sync or no sync at all.
I played around with ULMB and Tracefree

You must have G-Sync compatibility enabled to make the overdrive work properly. This doesn't mean you will have to use FreeSync for games.
To play games without FreeSync create an Nvidia profile and set Monitor Technology to fixed refresh. Don't disable this in Global Configuration of the 'Manage 3D settings'.
And disable ULMB to see if image improves because I suspect it is creating a double image.

Wish you read some reviews first before buying this model because reviewers highly recommend VG258QR instead of VG278QR.Why?Because 27 is not good for 1080p resolution.And 25's input lag is crazy low compared to 27.Maybe ghosting too. :)

I have not found many review prior to buying this monitor but it is getting OK with new settings.

I was running G sync off and as it seems that was the reason of higher ghosting.

My logic was that I don't need it since the I am around 350fps in CSGO so I was running ULMB.

Now with G sync on it is much better.

I already have a good 25 monitor AG251FZ is really good by my standards, I just wanted to try something bigger and purposely 1080p for CS its actually good it makes hitboxes bigger
